yep, exactly - it was "Dudes climbing on stage"
gd-73-06-09.jpg

I described this scene a few years ago in this post: June 9 & 10 - Taper's Gauntlet reveals an Orgy of Sound . This page is included in my taper's handbook.

Some punks were climbing up onto the stage during this show. Two of them get immortalized in the pic above. We were all pissed off at them. At several points you'll hear the crowd jeering [start of He's Gone] these butt-wipes. Then you'll hear the crowd cheering [two minutes into He's Gone] as Hell's Angels security dudes come out and escort them away. There's plenty of fireworks captured on my tapes. You'll hear them going off during both GD shows: fire-crackers, bottle-rockets, cherry-bombs, and whistle-chasers.

Also note, at the end of Mexicali Blues, at the 3:50 mark, Bobby announces over the PA, "Say there, climbing up on this here stage is not a real good idea, and you might try not doing it."

Thanks Monte ( again thanks for the taping etc. etc.!), I though something was off, why would they be so upset with "He's Gone" ? Silence or muttering might be a more expected expression of displeasure . I only heard the band booed once, and that was at the light s coming up at the end of a Long Beach show (8/27/81) . They either didn't like the "Don't Ease" encore, or wanted more .On your tape of the wonderful show, the crowd is pretty good for such a monster event .
